Gosford Council is celebrating a successful first year in charge of Niagara Park Stadium.
Council’s director of Community Growth Ms Judy Jaeger said that in this short period of time the venue had gone from strength to strength. “Since we took over the reins at the stadium, we’ve been able to establish it as one of the region’s premier sporting and event facilities,” Ms Jaeger said. “In the last fi ve months alone the stadium has hosted around 20 very substantial sporting events that have included everything from basketball to table tennis as well as archery and roller derby. “These sporting events have brought almost 5,000 competitors and spectators through the stadium’s doors. “Thousands of visitors have also attended many successful community events like the Central Coast Connect Day, Highland Dance Tournament and Festival of Magic,” said Ms Jaeger. The events happening at Niagara Park Stadium across October included the NSW State Junior Indoor Hockey Championships, Gosford Hospital 24 hour Volleyball Marathon Fundraiser and Central Coast Bocce Tournament. “Plans are also nearing completion to redevelop the stadium,” Ms Jaeger added. “We want to turn it into a modern community and sporting complex that is also home to a playground, library and cafe as well as meeting rooms and other community facilities.”
